What The Mystery of ClothingMakes Fathers Unique—The Mystery of Clothing
$17.95 Purchase Book

D. J. Young delves deeply into three beloved Bible stories to enrich our understanding of fatherhood. Revisiting the adventures of Adam and Eve, Joseph (son of Jacob, renamed Israel), and the Prodigal Son, Young reveals striking similarities in the natural, yet utterly profound actions of these three fathers putting clothes on their sons.

Just as the Heavenly Father clothed Adam in the Garden; just as Jacob gave young Joseph a special “coat of many colors”; and just as the Prodigal’s father had a fine robe brought to his repentant son, so in this short study all Christian fathers are urged to consider the profound gift they might give their children—spiritual clothing.

With what should a man clothe his own soul? How can he guard his heart and that of his child? And how can he possibly provide true spiritual clothing to his children? What Makes Fathers Unique? provides clues to these and other mysteries.

Young prods us to question the depths of our heart regarding the meaning of life and our reasons for striving to pass on personal beliefs and values.

Skillfully weaving Bible references with personal observations based on years of fatherhood and mentoring other men, Young brings encouraging, thoughtful perspective to a wide range of fatherhood’s challenges.
